Nice to be back to my blog at last. I have been busy trying out various natural skincare methods in my absence so i have a few particular faves that I’m dying to share!
I have been using this one face mask favourite pretty much every day now because i love it so much and to be honest, i think i will stick with it permanently since I’ve had such amazing results!
It is by far my favourite everyday mask and I’m trying to use it every morning. So far, it has reduced red marks, cleaned my pores, removed any blackheads and gave my skin an overall soft and clear complexion. Score!
I can’t believe my luck here, my pores are getting smaller and even disappearing and i have way less breakouts. Considering i had loads of breakouts with my last pregnancy I’m over the moon. It must be keeping my skin under control on top of everything.
It actually feels really soothing when i apply it now. At first it may feel a little tingly as it goes to work but after the 1st minute it feels calming on the skin and i personally love the sensation, it makes me want to put it on every morning. As though my skin is craving it!
The best news is, it can be made from items you probably have in your kitchen cupboard right now and is so cheap and easy to make. Happy Days. Here are the ingredients:
WHAT U NEED:
1 TSP ORGANIC HONEY
1 TSP FRESH LEMON JUICE
1/2 TSP CINNAMON
1/2 TSP NUTMEG
MIX TOGETHER ALL INGREDIENTS IN THE BOWL
APPLY TO THE FACE, AVOIDING THE DELICATE EYE AND MOUTH AREA
I USE SWIRLING MOTIONS TO MAKE SURE IT REALLY GETS INTO THE PORES
WASH HANDS AND LEAVE ON FOR 15-20 MINS
WASH OFF WITH WARM WATER AND PAT DRY
FOLLOW WITH YOUR REGULAR MOISTURISER
You will notice the results immediately but do continue using it every day for the best results. Another method i tried and tested was the peel off mask. Brilliant for pore cleaning and blackhead removal and instant pore minimiser here below:
BLACKHEAD REMOVAL AND PORE CLEANSING MASK
5 PIECES OF TISSUE PAPER (ie) 1 PLY TOILET ROLL OR SOFT FACIAL TISSUE
FACEMASK INGREDIENTS FROM ABOVE MASK
APPLY THE FACE MASK AS ABOVE, INCLUDING BELOW THE CHIN AREA
THEN APPLY THE TISSUE TO THE FOREHEAD, EACH CHEEK AND CHIN AND PRESS DOWN
THE TISSUE WILL STICK TO THE HONEY AND YOU CAN PLACE IT OVER THE MAIN AREA
LEAVE ON FOR UP TO 10 MINS
PEEL OFF GENTLY AND WASH FACE WITH WARM WATER
IF YOU HAVE A MICRO FIBRE FACE CLOTH IT IS IDEAL FOR CLEANING PORES
I have been using a micro fibre face cloth for a while now and find it much more effective than a standard towel for deep cleaning pores. You can really get into the corners of your nose and on the eyebrows where dry skin occurs normally.
See how you get on with these methods and do feel free to share results in the comments section provided. I think you will be surprised and delighted with the effectiveness at such low cost!
